Christmas Adventures

Lots of good times in Canada with my family...
It was lovely to see my two nephews (by the way, I am 5' 8")...
and my niece (she is also on her way to being tall LOL).
There was a significant snow storm that came through southwestern Ontario on Boxing Day. 
Kept the shovels and snow blowers going...
On my last day Dad and I went out for lunch on Sarnia Bay on the St. Clair River which is just south of Lake Huron.
The shipping industry is a big part of my home town. Huge freighters come through the Great Lakes all through the good weather but eventually will stop in winter. 
Some will dock for maintenance.We counted three in the government harbour.
Looking across the bay you can see the Chemical Valley - in its heyday there were several big and supporting companies south of town - the reason why my parents immigrated from the UK. You can see water fowl sitting on the ice in the middles of the bay. It was an unexpected adventure for us on a cold winter day.
